Spa Services at The Grand Kerr House

One of our best kept secrets (up to now) is our Spa Services available for House Guests and the General Public.  Whether you are looking for a relaxing, rejuvenating experience alone or with friends, we can provide a package of services or individual treatments certain to satisfy!  Some of our treatments include -

Relaxation Massage - 60 or 90 minutes - this is all about relaxing. It focuses on giving the client time to recover from the stresses of daily life.

Couples Massage - one hour - each of you will experience a massage together in the same area as individual therapists works on each person.

Signature Facial - one hour - this therapeutic treatment is tailored to the needs of each guest/client.  Facial treatment includes:  facial massage, specialty mask and complimentary foot massage.

Body Scrub and Wrap - 90 minutes - This luxury body treatment is a combination of exfoliation and hydration to leave your skin revitalized and glowing.  Treatment includes dry brushing, aromatherapy scrub and thermal wrap.

Reflexology - 30 or 60 minutes - Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort. In the absence of any particular malady or abnormality, reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness.

Aromatherapy - one hour - Aromatherapy is harnessing the therapeutic power of nature.  People have discovered the many beneficial uses of these wonderful substances. The true art of aromatherapy lies in the interaction of therapist and client. Your preferences, your needs, your goals are all considered in the creation of any customized blend.

Yoga Class - 75 minutes - Gentle and Adaptive Yoga with an approach of ease, comfort, and humor.  Suitable for women and men of all ages.  Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings.

Private Yoga Instruction - one hour - an individualized session with assessment and therapeutic application of Hatha Yoga including postures, breath work and meditation with awareness of personal concerns and/or medical conditions.

5 Stars From Kris, February 2018:  Best spa day ever!! I Love this place, I hope to return soon!! The new owners are fabulous. And the therapists that work there are amazing!!

5 Stars from Churee, January 2018:  My friends and I had the most relaxing weekend in this beautiful 1880s Queen Anne- style Victorian home. It has been restored beautifully, has all of the original woodwork, and is decorated with period antiques. The owners wowed us with their warm hospitality. They kept a perfect balance of attentive service and comfortable privacy. We could easily have never left the house and just enjoyed the spa services, but the village's main street shopping was only two blocks away and we couldn't resist. We will be back, often and soon!

Sessions can be scheduled on line through The Grand Kerr House website or by calling us direct.  We can't wait to see you and show you what you have been missing!

Rhythm on the River Concert Series in Grand Rapids, OH

There are so many wonderful things happening throughout the summer in Grand Rapids, OH!  Among our favorite events is The Rhythm on the River Concert Series.  Every show is a different genre so you are certain to find at least one performance (if not all of them) that is sure to please.

At The Grand Kerr House, we love starting Concert Sunday with a leisurely breakfast on the front porch (Bob makes the best omelettes!), walking into town afterwards to do a little window shopping (OK, sometimes I do a lot of real shopping), grabbing a late lunch at one of the many fine Grand Rapids restaurants, meandering along the towpath (with the beautiful river views), then grabbing our chairs and settling in for the show.  What a perfect Summer Sunday!

The event is held by the Wright Pavilion on the towpath along the Maumee River.  Concerts begin at 4:00 p.m. and are FREE and open to the public.  Be sure to bring a chair or blanket, maybe even a picnic snack, then relax and enjoy the show.

In the event of inclement weather, events are moved to the Old Fire Station on Main Street.

This year's schedule is:

June 17th - DC Taylor - 50's through Today's Hits
June 24th - Toraigh - Traditional Irish Folk Music
July 1st - Bliss - Acoustic Rock/Folk
July 16th - Quartet Bernadette - Unique Blend of Jazz, Pop and Gems from the Great American Songbook
July 29th - Buddy Love and the Coconuts - 50's & 60's Rock Band
August 26th - North Coast Big Band - Jazz, Swing Music, Big Band Sound
September 9th - Ol' Creek Road - Folk Band Playing Bluegrass & Gospel
October 7th - Otsego Swing Choir & Marching Band

Hope to see you there!
